About the Spiegeltent in Bristol
For the three weeks leading up to Christmas, Bristol will play host to an extraordinary festive pleasure palace – the Spiegeltent. It will hold host to a dazzling array of international music, comedy, theatre, cabaret and fine dining in Bristol.

The magical Spiegeltent ballrooms were constructed in Belgium at the turn of the last century.  The story goes that the numerous mirrors inside made it possible to make discrete eye contact during the late night dances! You can really feel the atmosphere of a bygone era as soon as you enter…

  • “Hoochie Coochie is the best cabaret-variety show I have seen outside of London. Line-ups are always exquisite, talented and surprising. It is a show I urge all of my friends to see if they are ever in the area.”
